LeftField Media is eager to reunite the geek community in a safe and conscientious way, working closely with all venues to ensure compliance with all CDC and state guidelines for the health and safety of their attendees, guests, and staff which remains their top priority.
“We are excited and honored to be bringing this amazing community of fans, exhibitors, guests, and industry professionals back together in-person. There is something so remarkable about in-person events, those opportunities for genuine moments of human interaction and connection, that cannot be easily replicated or replaced,” says Kelly Comboni, President of LeftField Media.
LeftField Media appoints comics industry veteran MK Goodwin as the new Portfolio Director to oversee Awesome Con and Rose City Comic Con.
In addition to their return to in-person events, LeftField Media is proud to announce the recent addition to their team of MK Goodwin, serving in the new role of Portfolio Director. Goodwin brings with her more than 10 years of industry experience working with ReedPop on the growth of events like New York Comic Con, Emerald City Comic Con, C2E2, and Star Wars Celebration. In her new role, Goodwin will be responsible for LeftField’s Comic Portfolio of events, which contains Awesome Con and Rose City Comic Con, as well as new business development.
“MK brings with her over a decade of experience building professional events with major partners, publishers, and guests,” said Comboni. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to the team, and we look forward to her leadership and strength adding to our events across the US.”
As always, both LeftField’s comic events will feature a variety of beloved industry and celebrity guests for fans to meet in person. Recent announcements have included appearances by writers like Sam Maggs (Captain Marvel), and TV and movie legends including Christina Ricci, George Takei, and William Shatner. The events will continue to roll out guest announcements across the upcoming months, and tickets for all four LeftField Media pop culture events are available now.
